Sometimes it is easy to forget how much the area you live in has to offer. The Washington DC area is famous for its monuments and politics, but did you know it also has a rich musical scene, complete with talented local bands?

Continuing the tradition of showcasing local music with the #MusicSaturday hashtag, here’s local group America Hearts from Washington, D.C. singing ‘The Space Between Your Ear’ and their top hit ‘Race Car Driver’. Jess Matthews’ indie-folk quartet make some of the most catchy music in D.C. and features Justin Moyer, Sammy Ponzar and Kristina Buddenhagen.

You can find the band at this link and on Facebook at this link.

Weeks ago, I re-introduced the Saturday palate cleanser posts (a.k.a. video of the week) on Red Brick Town. During the week, I post things going on in the neighborhood, about road closures, and news/events happening in the Alexandria, Virginia community. So I thought maybe one post during the week could just be for fun. Therefore, a post that will cleanse the palate.

For this week, with classes back in session at Alexandria City Public Schools (ACPS), Buzzfeed wants to know – Parents, can you still do fifth grade math problems? How many did you get right?
